Teensy-LC (Low Cost) by Paul Stoffregen is a powerful 32 bit microcontroller board, with a rich set of hardware peripherals, at a very affordable price:


Teensy LC – OSH Park Edition $11.29 USD

Teensy-LC delivers an impressive collection of capabilities to make modern electronic projects simpler.  It features an ARM Cortex-M0+ processor at 48 MHz, 62K Flash, 8K RAM, 12 bit analog input & output, hardware Serial, SPI & I2C, USB, and a total of 27 I/O pins:


Teensy-LC maintains the same form-factor as Teensy 3.2, with most pins offering similar peripheral features:

  • Real Hardware Serial
  • Efficient USB Communication
  • Hardware Timers
  • Analog Input & Output at 12 Bit Resolution
  • 5 Volt Buffer For WS2812/NeoPixel LED Projects


Compared With Teensy 3.2:

Some features of Teensy 3.2 simply aren’t available at this lower price point.

  • The I/O pins are not 5V tolerant.
  • The maximum speed is only 48 MHz, and the Cortex-M0+ omits M4’s special math instructions.
  • CAN bus is not available.
  • Teensy-LC has only 4 lightweight DMA channels, rather than 16 fully featured channels.
  • Serial1 & Serial2 have only standard buffers, not FIFOs.
  • Fewer hardware timers are available.
